After nearly a day-long meeting, the Ode Street Tribune's Management Committee voted to require its journalist to work through the holidays. The Management Committee consists of five managing editors, four assistant managing editors, three deputy assistant managing editors, two departmental sub-editors, and a supervisor in operational charge. Only the supervisor in operational charge voted against the resolution. The supervisor stated, "I think the journalist deserves a day or possibly two of vacation. His performance this past year, with a few notable exceptions, has been adequate, and deserves to be formally recognized as such." The other members of the Management Committee made lengthy speeches about the crisis in the news industry, how everyone has to work harder, and how in a few years the situation will be back to normal. As is usual practice, the editor adopted without comment the Management Committee's resolution on holiday operations.
After receiving the memo on holiday operations, the Tribune's journalist made an undignified and inappropriate gesture toward a deputy assistant managing editor, overturned a sub-editor's carefully tended office plant, and stormed out of the office. The Tribune thus once again has an opening for an experienced, hard-working journalist seeking advancement in the news industry. The Tribune hopes to resume local news coverage with its new staff by Jan. 3, 2012.
maybe the unemployed journalist will start a blog
During the hiatus caused by the turmoil in the editorial room, I suggest that the Ode Street Tribune publish articles by guest editors. You should insist that the guest editors cover news which is as important as the news regularly covered by the Ode Street Tribune. For example you might recruit a guest editorial that discusses whether of not the recent data from the CERN's Large Hadron Collider outside Geneva, Switzerland has in fact found evidence that demonstrates that the Higgs boson, aka "the God particle" in fact exits.
the God particle exists in the tanks of a gas station in rosslyn under a church
This blog is no doubt monitored by the CIA and if "the God particle exists in the tanks of a gas station in rosslyn under a church" they will find it. Since its location was posted by Anonymous, the CIA will probably get the Nobel prize for finding it.
